Ymgyrch Chwifio Baneri Glyndŵr 2011

This renewed campaign is, in part, to mark the success of the 'yes' vote in the referendum. However, we must not lose sight of the fact that the recent 'yes' vote was a limited victory and I and other 'Pobl Glyndŵr' will not rest on our laurals until we have a proper Parliament such as the one in Scotland, followed eventually by Independance such as in Ireland and other nations that have liberated themselves from imperialism. The struggle must not stop with the result of 3rd March 2011 but continue to a conclusion that sees achieved all the aspirations that comes forth from the most important ducument in our history - The Pennal Letter.

As a means of making that point and also to counter the present 'big sell' of English Royalty that is being pushed throughout Wales in connection with the English Royal Wedding which is to take place on the 29th April, I feel there is a need to make this call - this 'Galwad Glyndŵr' to all present day 'Pobl Glyndŵr' to raise 'Baneri Glyndŵr' wherever remotely possible throughout the land to counter all the Union Jacks that will, very soon, be dominating the landscape of our nation.

We hereby call for every patriot's support for a "full on" all Cymru  campaign which will begin on the 31 March, 'Pennal Letter Day', and hopefully, if every patriot in Wales makes this most' limited' of effort, Cymru will be a landscape of the red and yellow Four Lions Rampant by the 29 April and will continue to be so through 28 May (Glyndŵr's birthday) up to 21 Mehefin 'Dydd y Senedd (1404) and Dydd Glyndwr 16th Sept. Get organised with this campaign throughout Cymru now to counter the Union Jack hysteria approaching in April.  Visit links below to view previous posts  on the subject of Baneri Glyndŵr:

Flying the Red Dragon tudor flag revived by Lloyd George for the 1911 investiture is not a good idea for this campaign. In the first place, it will be assumed that you're participating in the English royal wedding celebrations whilst flying the 'Four Lions Rampant of Glyndŵr will be a definite statement as to where your loyalty lies and that his struggle for Independence is still being strongly pursued.

I was saddened to watch the Welsh news the other evening and see Welsh children of a very young age being brain washed and encouraged to make Union Jack bunting for Street Parties. Patriotic parents need to find out if their children are being involved in this activity and complain to the school and local educational authorities if they are. Of course, we all - and especially children love parties but patriotic parents cannot possibly allow their children to attend  these street parties. Thus it is very important that Pobl Glyndŵr (with children) join with other patriots in organising alternative patriotic events in their communities such as Pobl Glyndŵr picnics and pageants in the parks of Wales. all the better if such an event can be held at one of the Glyndŵr designated named parks such as the ones at Johnstown , Wrecsam, Caenarfon and Caerffili.

Organising a picnic is simple enough and I am sure that out there are patriotic entertainers who would put on free entertainment for the children. Between now and 29th April, Pobl Glyndŵr could perhaps organise suitable children's pageants  to honour Catrin Glyndŵr a real Princess of Wales who, as both the daughter of Owain Glyndŵr and wife of Edmund Mortimer was imprisoned with her children in the Tower of London. All died under mysterious circumstances.  So, there's no time to waste. Get busy - and this way, the children of Pobl Glyndŵr will not be left out. Use the occasion to teach our children 'Hanes Glyndŵr' rather than let them be 'Brit Brain Washed'.
          The English Royal Wedding 29 April 2011.

Without any doubt this Wedding will be pushed "big time" throughout April and of course on 29 April and all over the long Bank Holiday weekend to May Day - Dydd Calan Mai so, over the May Bank Holiday weekend, I would suggest that you could get yourselves and your families 'away from it all' by visiting Glyndŵr sites in your own locality or, further afield, in areas that you may not have visited yet. Myself, in view of the 'Monmouthshire is English Campaign' will be visiting Glyndŵr sites in Gwent and visiting Gwent Castles I have not had the opportunity to visit before. Where ever you go, you could take the Glyndŵr flag with you and could fly small ones from your cars as you will have seen illustrated in blog pictures above.

The most militant of Pobl Glyndŵr may wish to make their protest and perhaps the best place to do that on the 29th April would be at the Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan Statue in Llandovery which will be overlooking a royal wedding street party in the market square below; right on the spot where Llywelyn was hung, drawn and quartered. Yes! pretty disgusting, talk about dancing on the graves of Welsh Heroes.

Surely, Western patriots will be doing something about that? It will be a 'real low' point for Cymric patriotism if they do not hold a patriotic protest.

I would also suggest that there is also a need for the London Welsh to organise an alternative 'protest event' at the Catrin Glyndŵr and Family Memorial Garden at St Swithin's in the City of London to focus minds on the fact that Catrin was our last Welsh Princess and not Diana or this Kate Middleton so, an alternative 'Pobl Glyndŵr' event there is as important as one at Llandovery. Also, other alternative events that could be held on the 29th April in London could be at the Marble Arch site of Tyburn where Rhys Ddu ap Gruffydd was executed. In Wales,  Other locations for outings and the holding of  'Pobl Glyndŵr picnics' could be at Glyndŵr sites such as at Stalling Down, Bro Morgannwg. Mynydd Hyddgen, Talybont. Craig y Dorth, Gwent. Twt Hill, Caernarfon and Mynydd y Gaer, Flintshire.

There are of course plenty of other Glyndŵr associated battle sites and castles worth visiting but where ever you spend the 29th April, make sure you make it a Gŵyl Baneri Glyndŵr event. Just just see how many flags you can get flying as a Pobl Glyndŵr protest against this English royal wedding being pushed on us in Wales. Then get your photos posted up on your blogs and on flikr.  Like 'Clerwyr Glyndŵr' (the facebooks, text and twitterers of their day) spread the word far and wide make 29th April a very special 'Dydd Baneri Glyndŵr' Let's witness a 'Pobl Glyndŵr' patriotic  protest all over the land from the North to the South, and from the West to the East.

  4. Historically, Mynwy was part of the ancient Celtic lands of Siluria and, post Roman, became the medieval kingdom of Gwent. In the 11th century, King Gruffydd ap Llywelyn sought to make it part of a united Wales but this was forestalled by Saxon agression and, not much later, by Norman invasion and colonisation. However, in the 15th century, Gwent was to fully support the Owain Glyndŵr War of Welsh Independence and many of Glyndŵr's battles were fought in Gwent - such as at Graig y Dorth, Llyngoed,  Y Grysmwnt and, most signifigantly, Pwll Melyn (1405).  The county became known as Monmouthshire later via the 1536 Act of Union - which nobody in Cymru signed for anyway.

Owain Glyndŵr, besides heavy losses incurred in most of the Gwent battles, clearly felt that this part of his 'Teyrnas Glyndŵr' was worth fighting for just as much as all other parts of Wales. I thus call upon Gwent 'Pobl Glyndŵr' and all  other Cymric  patriots in the area to rise to the occasion to, in the first instance, ensure that all Owain Glyndŵr connections in Gwent are made more publically known with Battle Site Plaques and memorials.
Other things that could and needs to be done are:
a)  A Gwent 'Llwybr Glyndŵr'.

b)  An annual celebration of the victory at Graig y Dorth concluding with a Cyngerdd Glyndŵr in Trefynwy.

c) Annual commemorations for the other battles of Grosmont, Campstone Hill and Pwll Melyn.

Plus, of course, there's a need to see much more of 'Baneri Glyndŵr' flying high all over Gwent - especially as part of the 'counter campaign' earlier mentioned and particularly so on 28 May, 21 June and of course 16 Sept.
What is the alternative? If the people of Gwent do not illustrate to this English Democrats group that Mynwy is part of our nation and is not for the taking? You will see a growing increase of the flying of St George's crosses, in this part of 'Teyrnas Glyndŵr' and no doubt, the English patriots there will want to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Azincourt 1415-2015 with all its unfortunate Shakespearian "so called" Welsh connections so foolishly accepted and embraced by followers of 'Fluellen' (the most degrading prototype of a Welsh character there is)   complete with 'Tudor' leeks and forelock tugging to English Monarchs who were made English Princes of Wales such as Monmouth's Henry V, the present Charles Windsor and next in line William Windsor and, soon to be, wife Kate, who will, no doubt, be given the title 'Princess of Wales' in due course?  
Connected in many ways with the above, is my critique of 'Cadw' and it's flawed Owain Glyndŵr Interpretation plan.  To begin with, Cadw is intent on leaving Gwent (and many other areas of Wales that have an Owain Glyndŵr history) out of their Glyndŵr EU - Heritage Initiative. Instead, Cadw's plans for Gwent are to lumber them with an initiative that will promote the Anglo - Norman Marcher Lords connection!  Are you going to accept that colonisers version of history? Of course not!

Gwent Patriots - Pobl Glyndŵr, please read my critique of this Cadw Plan in the link below and get together as a pressure group to do something about this asap - and "full on in the face" of Cadw and the Ministry of Heritage at the Welsh Assembly.  Also, organise to inform Local Authorities (that have Owain Glyndŵr history associated sites under their juristiction) of the 'Cadw Plan' so that they, also,  can argue their case for being included in any EU - Heritage Owain Glyndŵr Initiative.  Do not take no for an answer!

However, I suspect that attention was deliberately given to Shakespeare to ease the way for Cadw to push on unsuspecting Welsh (who are foolishly followers of 'Fluellen') a major commemoration of Azincourt (1415) in 2015 and a celebration of Henry V as a Shakespeare made acceptable English Prince of Wales.
If Cadw/WAG does not cooperate, just get on with it anyway, establish a 'Gwent Hanes Glyndŵr Association' to advance your own Initiative Projects. Further note that there are moves to establish a National Glyndŵr Towns/Sites Association that will, possibly, be linked to Machynlleth Council and their Gŵyl Fawr Dathlu Coroni Glyndŵr which is held on and about 21 June annually. You can further link with this Embassy Motivated Glyndŵr 'Pan Wales Initiative' by making sure Gwent is linked nationally with the Glyndŵr Story via the Cefn Caer Arwyr Glyndŵr project. Why not, this year, see to it that Abat John ap Hywel of Llantarnam is represented by a plaque. For further info on this project, visit link below:


Last but not least, please note that in the aforementioned 'Cadw' Glyndŵr Initiative', the consultant makes "much ado" about Shakespeare - which Germain Greer and Peter Akroyd both agree on as being the father of 'English Identity' so, why is such attention given to Shakespeare in 'Cadw's plans? Simply, because it confuses the Welsh as to their true native Identity and thus serves to galvanise their British Identity. It is a great irony, whilst Sian shakespear (yes, that is her name) gives so much attention to William Shakespeare she totally ignores the Welsh Bard and Glyndŵr warrior Hopcyn ap Thomas who could be described as the 'Father of Welsh Identity' prior to Iolo Morgannwg. Most notably, it should have been he who gets attention as a great Welsh Bard in the Plan for, without the likes of he and the Clerwyr Glyndŵr, there might not have been such a speedy successful Glyndŵr regional rising - which erupted into a national revolt that becomes a War of Independence that was to be fought all over our nation - and, indeed, into the border lands to the East of Offa's Dyke. It is now thought that Hopcyn ap Thomas was not merely a pen pusher but also a fighter for freedom who, in due course, gave up his life fighting for Cymru at the Battle of Pwll Melyn in 1405.
